Giving Your Style an Easy Boost

If you are currently feeling as though you are not quite sure what to do with your style, you are not alone. This is a feeling that strikes many at different times, and it is often hard enough to know what kind of a change you will need to make, let alone how you could even go about making that kind of change once you figure out what it is. In this post, we are going to take a look at some of the things that you can always consider a possibility if you are looking for a quick boost to your style; as long as you have these ideas in the back of your mind, you should find it surprisingly easy to lift up your style whenever you feel you need to, and so get back to looking your absolute best again in no time.



Change The Bag
It’s always worth looking at accessories, given what kind of effect they tend to have on the whole outfit and look. When you use accessories in the right way, it essentially means that you can create a huge number of different looks with the same clothing, and that can be an easy boost for anyone’s style for that very reason. The bag is one place to look to, as it is so easy to change up and yet can make such a profound difference overall. If you already have a selection to choose between, then all the better, but if not then perhaps it might be time to think about treating yourself to a fancy Fifth Collection Louis Vuitton or something similar. As long as you are happy with the bag, it’s likely that you will be happy with the whole look and feel of your style as well.

A New Coat
In winter, one of the simplest changes you can make to your whole style is to change your coat, and this can be a great means of producing whatever kind of effect you might be looking for. Of course, it’s not always feasible to buy a new coat, but it is usually perfectly possible to at least switch out between the ones you already own, and generally that alone will; make a big enough difference to how your style feels. This is at least worthwhile and effective as long as you are outside, but of course if you are going to an event indoors you will need to also think about what is underneath the coat.

Be Confident
Finally, remember that confidence is the number one tool that you have in attempting to make any look really work for you. If you think you have been a little lacking in confidence recently, then you might want to think about working on that - something which anyone can do if they try. It helps to think of confidence like a muscle which needs training in order to grow - as long as you do that, and you don’t let it atrophy, you should find that you can carry off your style with much greater aplomb.

Your First Manicure - What to Expect

Are you thinking about having your first manicure? Manicures are one of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday morning. My mama and I often have manicure dates – because hey, everyone deserves to be pampered, right?

What is a manicure?
Just like you can watch plastic surgery videos online, you can watch manicure ones as well to get a good idea of what happens. Essentially this is the cleaning and polishing of your nails. But don’t worry, it involves a lot more than a quick wet wipe. Your nails will be cleaned, cut and shaped. The nail technician removes old nail polish and uses a buffer to smoothen the surface of your nails. She will then pay attention to your cuticles. They will be softened with cuticle oil and pushed back. After this, your nails will be polished. There is a base coat, the chosen polish and then a top coat. The base coat is used to help the polish stick whilst the top coat acts as a seal for protection. 

Different types of manicures
There are several different types of manicures available for you to choose from. The classic French manicure is definitely the most popular. This is because it looks clean and is the most versatile. It features a pale pink polish with a white tip. Simply stunning. You can turn the French manicure on its head with the reverse style. This means you essentially move away from the traditional colors. You could have a clear polish with a bright pink tip. You could have a white polish with a black tip. Any color combination can be used. Aside from this, there is the paraffin manicure. If you have overworked hands or dry skin this is the option you should go for. Paraffin is a heated wax and it infuses the skin with moisture so that you are left with supple and smooth skin. It is extremely relaxing and very beneficial. 

Top nail polish colors
Finally, if you are struggling to decide what color to go for when pampering yourself, don’t panic. We are about to give you a helping hand. Let’s take a look at the top three trendiest colors at present… 
  • Oxblood – This color is ideal for winter. It creates that gorgeous moody hue which is bang on fashion at the moment. It is dark and enchanting. 
  • Chartreuse – Keep the sun shining! Chartreuse is ideal for those with electric style. Full of energy and full of color!
  • Silver glitter – Sparkle and shine! Glitter is fun and glamorous. It is also perfect for the festive period as well.
Hopefully, you now have a better idea of what to expect when having a manicure.
Go on, treat yourself!
